New York: New Work by Fab 5 Freddy. Now showing at Gallery 151 in NYC through July 1, 2011

Fred Brathwaite aka Fab 5 Freddy is a pioneer in hip hop and graffiti.  His latest exhibit is entitled “New York: New Work” and is showing at Gallery 151 in New York.  His mixed-media canvases use a modified pointillism technique where he incorporates hand-laid crystals into his works.

It’s hard to see the crystals from these pictures, so perhaps a closer look will help you get the idea.  See an extreme close up after the jump.

“New York: New York” by Fab 5 Freddy is on display at Gallery 151 until July 1, 2011.  Gallery 151 is located at  350 Bowery between 4th Street and Great Jones in New York.
